Trump Officially Running For Office – Originally 100/1 To Do So

Donald Trump was formally nominated as the Republican candidate in the Presidential race and it marked the end of quite an incredible race for the man who was originally started off as a 100/1 shot to do so.

It also marks the start of the home straight in the race to become President for which Trump is now just 7/4 with William Hill, having been 150/1 when he first entered the betting.

Hillary Clinton is the 4/9 favourite to be the next President.

“Trump becoming President would not quite be in the Leicester City league of upsets but in political betting it would certainly ‘trump’ the comparatively short upsets of the EU Referendum outcome and the Tories winning the General Election,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
